The Hauntening Character Profile: Carl

Hey there, Investigators!

Well just look who FINALLY made it into our lil games. I don’t know about you but this is one I’ve been looking forward to for a while! I’m just curious who’s been running the mini-mart in the meantime??

With Episode 2 of The Hauntening event, we also get some New Characters. Characters like the manager of the Quahog Mini-Mart, Carl!

I’m Carl, yes I’m the real Carl, all you other Carls are just imitating…

Let’s take a look at what Carl can do in our silly lil games.

Carl is a Character added during the 2nd Episode of The Hauntening in 2016. As with (almost) all Characters in TQFS in order to unlock him you’ll have to collect lots of STUFF.

First though, you had to get the Pink Car in the Event Area repaired so you could get him out. It costs $1000 & is Instant Unlock.

With him now visible in front of the Pink Car, you can tap on the Lock Icon to see just what is required to bring him into your game.

Carl does come with a complete set of Tasks! Tasks that will help you earn $$$ & XP. He also has a task to help you clear Spacemen!

Let’s take a look at some of Carl’s Tasks:

IS HE VOICED? 

He is not currently voiced.


And there you have it, the complete breakdown for Quahog’s number 1 movie fan… Carl!

What do you think of Carl? Have you unlocked him? If so, what do you think of his tasks? Have a favorite? If not, how close are you? Let us know!

  1. Another one in the “no way in heck am I getting Carl completed” camp. Largely, I think, due to drop rate and the overlap with James Woods. For me it has been the EMF to Aliens ratio – I think I have only had two searches actually find aliens. That means little to no radiation (bugs don’t drop well) and therefore little to no keys since all of the ectoplasm I have accumulated is currently pretty much worthless. Oh well – can only do what I can do, I guess. Just a little bit frustrating.

  2. Carl might be possible for me. At 35 bobble heads I’ve just got Herbert switched over to sprays having got the legitimate business with 1 ticket needed.
    What annoys me is that after struggling with missing aliens and bad drops, by the time I earn “prizes” on the second row they are usually 90% worthless as I have earned the items through game play.

  4. Unlocked the popcorn building this am and have tried every 2 hours and have zero popcorn. So far I have had 7 tries and nothing. Any suggestions on what to try?

      Ouch that sucks. Sometimes you can try restarting your device/clearing cache I think. The good news is it drops 2 at a time and as you can collect often I hope you get them before the case closes!

      • By restarting/clearing do you mean just shut my iPad off and restart or is there something else? At this point I’ll try anything as we started today just like yesterday’s luck.

        • You can’t clear Family Guy cache on an IOS device without completing removing the game, but you could try shutting down iPad and restarting, occasionally this does help.

  7. I know an extension was just given for Carl (he has a timer over his head), but the extension runs past the closing of case 1. Can it be confirmed that we will be able to launch case 2 content no matter where we are in the questline for phase 2 of case 1? Carl is needed for one aspect of the questline and there is no way I am getting him even with the extension.

      • As have mine!! I’m so happy with our little TinyCo😉 Aliens drop more often, the bugs drop radiation more often too!! I almost get 3 out of 4 EMF readers every 6 hours, and craziest thing=when I finally got my popcorn dropping building it dropped the first 2 times I tapped!! 4 popcorns in 4 hours and they were rare?!!? Can’t hate that, still need some bobbleheads but am 43/55 so I feel super confident I’m going to get Carl!! NEVER saw that happening!! ***Happy dance***

      Usually the character questlines will stay, but the main questline will not. We’ll have to find out for sure on Friday though.

  11. Sadly, Carl doesn’t seem to be within reach by Friday for me, I have all the needed items already with exception of the alien bobble heads that drop from the buggy aliens. I’m at 13/55 needed for those and I don’t anticipate being able to complete it, and being a mostly freemium player who just had to fork over a grand to fix my car I just can’t afford clams to buy him out. And I really like the character Carl so it does sadden me that I won’t be getting him. Drops for bug spray have been really awful with all my available characters trying around the clock for bug spray and averaging one can drop per 3 to 4 tasks for it. Meaning I send them on task 3 to 4 times to get 1 can of spray, not at all the “common” that is advertised. Same goes for my alien ufo building that drops the spray, I’ve had it for 4 days now and gotten one single can of bug spray for it since I’ve gotten it, it’s mostly just a coin building at this point. And my alternate playspace is overrun with buggy aliens. So not like there are a lack on them to spray! At least if each buggy alien dropped multiple bobble heads per spray that would be helpful, or if each can of spray would kill multiple buggy aliens that are in the purple target area that would be much better and most would have a fighting chance of completing by Friday. Just my two cents on game play I’m seeing so far here! It’s the big sticking point of this part 2 on this first case for me for sure! Thanks for all the helpful info Lotty!

      Sorry to hear about your drop rates being rubbish 😦 mine haven’t been too bad this phase and once I got the 33 key building it progressed quite smoothly. Personally I’m struggling with the lotto tickets lol.

    • Just an update from me, bug spray seems to be dropping a bit better these past 24 hours, I’ve managed to get up to 18/55 needed alien bobble heads at this point, but I noticed that now whenever I try to spray a buggy alien with it now I’m having issues with my game force closing. And I never ever have issues with that even when everyone else is having that issue. I’ve got a lots on memory and ram, so that’s not it. My regular quahog is practically bare with zero decor and buildings only the needed ones are out and one small street maze in case they drop something we need to bomb again. I sent tiny Co an in gamer message and we shall see what happens. Tried installing the update in the Google play Store but that didn’t help. Did basic troubleshooting. Anyone else having this issue today?

      • How much is going on with your Play Field? How many “bad guys” do you have running around? How many Characters on “visual” tasks? Crashing is more than just what your device has stored… it is also what is going on IN the game too. Think of it as this… rush hour traffic… lots of things all cramming into the same spot, there is going to be a lag.

  13. when you do these polls and people post comments, does TinyCo ever actually read it? Most people (myself included) play non stop and I just unlocked James Woods last night. The fact that they added a 2nd character to unlock with 2 days left is crazy. And no matter what they say (and i’ve messaged in game) the drop rates are broken. Mort Chris and Herbert are supposed to have common drops for spray cans and I have only gotten 1 out of the last 12 tries. All other item drops are similar. Really hope they extend this event/section as almost all comments on here are that people are WAY behinf

  17. Nobody is going to get Carl without spending a TON of clams. 55 buggy alien statues, 4 hours per bug spray.
    Popcorn is a rare drop from the last building, but only Peter can clear aliens to get the materials to get keys. The pke readers have a 6 hour task to get, and 3/4 of them don’t find aliens. I’ve gone entire days with only one alien discovered.

    Carl is very badly thought out.
